      Hi, I noticed in the past couple of months that my BS has increased a lot. Now, I just read that Steroids can cause this. I have back problems and have been getting injections in my lower spine, yes with steroids..I guess this could be one of the causes for the increase..Could steroids injections cause this?? Thank You BillyBuck, USA
